Battle Flag Memorial Built
at Florida Line in Lockhart, Alabama
                         (A Confederate Heritage Fund Project)  

The Confederate Battle Flag Memorial honors the 800,000 Confederate
States Veterans who fought and suffered, the 260,000 who died, and the
160,000 maimed for life defending
the low-taxed, voluntary union of
“free, sovereign and independent States”
promised in bold writing three
times by the Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence on July 4,
1776.

Abraham Lincoln,
alone, ordered the invasion of the States soley to collect an
average 40% federal sales tax (200% on plows and stoves used by pioneer
farmers) to fatten the wallets of his Wall Street owners, who elected him with
only 39% of the popular vote.

Lincoln's Tax War changed the
voluntary union of low-taxed independent
States
back into a compulsory union of high taxed colonies of the
federal government
, as the colonies were under Great Britain before 1776.

Abraham Lincoln declared his War was over taxes ONLY and not
slavery, at all
.

March 4, 1861, Abraham Lincoln stated in his First Inaugural Address:
     “I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the
institution of slavery
in the States where it exists.  I believe I have no lawful
right to do so, and I have
no inclination to do so.” (Paragraph 4)

“The power confided to me will be used to hold, occupy, and possess the
property and places belonging to the government
(four Federal tax collection
forts)
, and to collect the duties (tariffs) and imposts (import tax); but
beyond what may be necessary for these objects, there will be no invasion,
no using of force against or among the people anywhere
.”  (Paragraph 21)

“I understand a proposed (Corwin) Amendment to the Constitution has
passed Congress, to the effect that
the Federal Government shall never
interfere with the domestic institutions of the States
, including that of
persons held to service
(slavery).  Holding such a provision to now be
implied Constitutional law, I have no objection to its
being made express
and irrevocable
.”  (Paragraph 32)
